drinking lino

I made this as part of a small linocut workshop in college. The image itself is, i think, quite similar to one of my previous ones but with the helpful tips and advice, not to mention my friend's excellent tools, my lines have become a lot sharper and cleaner.

I learnt how to mono print at college! We had a workshop where we learnt a couple of techniques. None of them are finished pieces, we only made quick doodles to learn the process (and what a fun process it is!)
These are only a few of the mono printing experiments but I made so many!

faces project

As part of the same assignment we also had to create one single face/ portrait in A1. 
As you may notice, i added a bottle of Old Monk rum in the corner. 
Ahhhhh.. old monk... 
A close-up or two:
And finally, for a better idea of size, here i am with my man (so to speak).

faces project - twenty

My first mini assignment in my master's program was to make 20 faces (portraits)... in A1. For me, that's a pretty scary assignment because the largest I ever work with is A5! 
I drew my 20 faces in a Indian street scene. I guess I was feeling homesick :(
